FPS staff report

Carrollton High School boys basketball
Zade Deitz takes a shot during the Warriors game last Friday night against Canton South.

Carrollton senior Stephen Ericksen made school history last Friday night in the game against visiting Canton South.

Ericksen opened the final quarter for the Warriors with a basket, taking him over the 1,000-point mark for his high school career.

Ericksen is only the fifth Carrollton boys basketball player to score 1,000 points.

Jack Cole was the last player to accomplish that feat back in the 1976-77 season. Cole finished his career with 1,166. Kevin Merrick, 1967-69, is Carrollton’s all-time scoring leader with 1,490 points. Robert Noble (1961-64) is third with 1,149 and John Pothorski (1958-60) is fourth with 1,061.

Entering the final week of the regular season, the Warriors are 12-7 overall and 6-6 in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference.

Last Tuesday night the Warriors were on the road at Alliance.

A four-point third quarter proved to be the doom of the Warriors as the Aviators outscored Carrollton 10-4. They put the game away in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Warriors 21-12 for a 56-42 NBC win.

Ericksen led the way for Carrollton with 21 points and 10 rebounds, while sophomore Zade Deitz was next with nine points.

The Aviators’ J. J. Kukura scored a team-high 21 points, while Parish Martin added 12 points.

The Warriors led 26-25 at the intermission.
Last Friday night before a packed house in the Carrollton High School gym, the Warriors came up just short, falling to Canton South 69-66.

It was a back and forth high intensity game that featured a number of lead changes.

The game was tied at 34-34 at halftime.

Senior Andrew Collins threw up a desperation shot as the buzzer was going off to end the first half. He was fouled and went to the line for three shots. He canned all three to tie the score at halftime.

Collins led the Warriors with 21 points, including six three pointers.

Carrollton opened the third with a 7-0 run to take a 41-34 lead, but the Wildcats came back and closed out the period with a 5-0 run and took a 53-51 lead at the end of the quarter.

The lead changed hands several times in the final frame. The Warriors trailed 67-66 with just seconds left, but were unable to score.

Ericksen added 13 points and 11 rebounds and Deitz added 19 points.

The Warriors were 24-of-60 from the field and just 9-of-19 from the line. They had 26 rebounds and eight turnovers.

For the Wildcats, who secured at least a tie for the NBC title, Armand Fontes led four Wildcat players in double figures with 21 points, while Kyle Deckerd and Jason Merriweather each added 13 and Trey Taylor 10.

From the floor, they hit 27-of-46 action shots and were 12-of-20 from the line. They finished with 22 rebounds and eight turnovers.

In the junior varsity game, the Wildcats outscored the Warriors 47-27 in the second half for a 65-61 win.

Carrollton held a 34-19 advantage at halftime.

T. K. Krantz paced the Warriors with 19 points.

The Warriors were to wrap up their regular season this week. They will host Minerva Friday night in the Hoops for Hope game. Saturday night Marlington will visit for a make up game from earlier in the season that was postponed due to weather.

Last Saturday night in a nonleague game, the Warriors outscored host Northwest 14-10 in the fourth quarter to pick up a 47-46 come from behind win over the Indians.

Carrollton trailed 36-33 going into the final period.

Collins drained four three pointers and finished with 14 points to pace the Warriors, while Ericksen added 12 points and a game-high 12 rebounds.

The Warriors had 16 field goals and went 8-for-12 from the line.

Northwest’s Andrew Colon and Brandon Freeman scored 13 points each to lead the way for the Indians, who fell to 9-10 on the year.
